Reaction to Bayern v Werder Bremen

The unanimous feeling in the Bayern camp after Sunday's 1-1 stalemate at home to Werder Bremen was that this was a match the champions should have won. Munich failed to convert a string of gilt-edged openings and were left to rue two unnecessarily dropped points. "Missing our chances was the only thing we did wrong today," coach Ottmar Hitzfeld lamented.

<b>Reaction to Bayern v Werder Bremen</b>

<b>Franz Beckenbauer:</b> "We had so many clear-cut chances. We were inches off target, you have to say we were unlucky. You'll always make a mistake or two, and one of ours was punished. We're upset at not winning, but we played well as a team. We can be pleased with that display."

<b>Ottmar Hitzfeld:</b> "I was myself surprised by the first half. We set a high tempo, we passed the ball well and created plenty of chances. The move leading to our goal was tremendous. Unfortunately, missing our chances was the only thing we did wrong today. Werder keeper Tim Wiese was outstanding with some sensational reflex saves. We hit the post and the bar, but fortune deserted us. Naturally your opponents will take heart from that, and Werder pulled themselves together. The equaliser was a bitter blow, but we continued to create chances. Lukas Podolski had a huge opportunity, and Hasan Salihamidzic only just missed after a brilliant piece of play. We have to work on taking our chances, and we'll make our own luck."

<b>Mark van Bommel:</b> "If we keep on playing like that, we can still finish third, second or even first. Obviously three points would have been ideal but unfortunately it's finished 1-1. We had some superb chances but failed to take them. We've played well but only taken a point. We have to move on and perform again next week in Frankfurt."

<b>Thomas Schaaf (Bremen coach):</b> "We took a long time to settle. We knew Bayern would be up for it after winning in the Champions League. We never got going in the first 20 to 25 minutes. We couldn't complain at being a goal down. It was a lucky draw, we survived a barrage of chances. We can be very happy with a point."

<b>Torsten Frings (Bremen, ex-Bayern):</b> "We were under pressure from the start and let ourselves be intimidated by Bayern's aggression, so there are no complaints about going behind. We finally got going after 25 minutes or so. We came at them after the break and scored a fortunate equaliser. At the end of the day, the result was about right."
